Welcome to Awakenings

Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history boring, think again: It is who we are, what we do and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.

After Pearl Harbor Rare Photos

The rarity stems from most of the photos not being published in LIFE Magazine. Be sure to watch in full screen.

Within days of the attack the eyes of America were, understandably, focused on Pearl Harbor and the Pacific.

 Life magazine covered the war with more tenacity 
and focus than any other magazine on earth.
